Season a Success Despite First Round Loss

May 31, 2012

NEWPORT–Coming into the opening round of the play-offs, the North Country boys tennis team was ranked fourth overall in Division I.
Their opponent, Champlain Valley was slated as the thirteenth seed.
How very misleading these numbers turned out to be.
The Falcons came out, gave everything they had, but still ended up on the losing end of things, falling 6-1 to bow out of the opening round of the play-offs.

Lyndon Defeats Lake Region 15-4

May 31, 2012

LYNDON– It didn't take long for Lyndon Institute to set the tone.
After roping an inside-the-park home run in the game's first at bat, No. 3 Lyndon Institute cruised to a 15-4 victory over 14th-seeded Lake Region in high school girls softball Division II playdowns Wednesday afternoon.
The Vikings' (14-3) early dominance earned them a 9-0 lead after the first two innings, a comfortable margin for a veteran club looking to return to the state championship game after falling in that contest a year ago.

Falcons Seasons Come to an End on the Road Against CVU and MMU

May 31, 2012

JERICHO–After performing well in her final two regular season starts, coach Leslie Dunn opted to go with Taylor Blake out of the shute for the Falcons opening round game against Mount Mansfield.
“She was great against Essex and MVU, so I figured we might as well go with her as she performs much better as a starter than as a reliever,” said Dunn.
Blake gave it her all, but MMU jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first, so the coach brought in the ever-reliable Kayla Descheneau mid-way through the second to finish out the contest.

Morin Takes Sectionals With a 1 Over 73, Moves on to States

May 31, 2012

WATERBURY–Harwood was the best team while Matt Morin of Lake Region was the top individual at the Division II sectionals on Wednesday.
Morin shot a 1 over 73 to earn the win.
The highlight of Morin’s round was a 17th hole Eagle to pull ahead of Harwood's Brooks Curran who finished 2nd with a very nice 76.
Another Lake Region score of note was Carl Oberg’s very respectable 88.
It was not quite good enough to send him to States as an individual but still a very good effort on his part.
Team Results were as follows:
Harwood 1st with a total of 326.
Lyndon Institute 2nd with total of 343.
